RE: GAS 6.6 GM

I wonder if the "new" 6.6 gasser is similar to the old Pontiac 6.6 ltr. gas engine? Curly

RE: Plug in truck bed or use plug in bumper for 5th wheel

Thanks so much. I think I will put one in the bed of the new truck for the brakes. Sorry about the confusion on the other post and the 110 volt plug. Just should have ask about the 12volt/brake plug. Curly

Plug in truck bed or use plug in bumper for 5th wheel

Just curious to see how many of you add a plug in the bed of your truck to plug in the 5th wheel or do you use the one in the bumper? On my old truck they put a plug in the bed of the truck to plug in the trailer and when I lost a rear tire, so went the whole plug and wire harness. It tore it all out. I replaced the cable for about a $100 but may use the plug in the bumper on the new truck. Just looking at both ways to go so if you have a recommendation, please let me know. Thanks, Curly

RE: GAS 6.6 GM

My other question would be is that the same 6 speed transmission used on the 6.0 engine and if so, is it beefy enough for the new 6.6 engine? If so, that tells me it is a pretty stout tranny, too. Curly

RE: GAS 6.6 GM

Just traded an 07 2500HD Chevy with a 130,000 miles for a 2019. Did not want to be one of the first to try out the new 6.6 engine. Been there done that with new design products. Purchased the good old 6.0 gasser and will see if I made the wrong choice or not down the road....so to speak. Hope everyone has/had a nice holiday. Curly

RE: 5th wheel hitch installation

With this new truck I feel like I have come out of the dark ages compared to the new one we purchase years ago

RE: 5th wheel hitch installation

Thanks but just picked up the truck from the dealer. Wanted to grab a 2019 so now we need to find out the best options for 5th wheel installation at the local level with the best value. I really loved the 2007 and it did very well for us so we are hoping that the 2019 with the same powertrain will do as well. We know what to expect from it. Thanks, Curly

RE: Closet walls pulling away from structure

Heat is a funny thing here in the west. I have wallpaper that is wrinkling on the upper section of my 5th wheel in the bedrooms. It is not leaking but sliding down the wall just a bit from the heat. Took it in for some inspection and they said it is not unheard of for them to do it here with the heat. They said to change the direction of how we park it to change where the heat is hitting the trailer. Curly

Tucson to Depoe Bay, Oregon

Looking for the best way to get from Tucson next year to Depoe Bay, Oregon avoiding going through Las Vegas or Los Angeles. Pulling a 5th wheel and would like a good route with some campgrounds along the way. Not wanting to drive more than about 400 miles per day. Thanks in advance, Curly

RE: Power awning if fabric tears

Power awning if fabric tears

I have not seen this question asked but then again, I may have missed it. When we were on a trip with an older trailer with a manual pull out awning, we were on the road so the awning was retracted when a passer by wanted us to pull over. We did and found the top of the fabric on the awning was tearing and the brackets were starting to fall down on the side of the trailer. I had some plastic tie wraps and good old duct tape and secured the brackets after I cut off all the fabric so we could continue on with our trip. My question is...on the new power awnings, there are no holes through the support arms so if the fabric holding the awning next to the trailer starts to come apart, how do we secure the arms against the trailer? I know, a lot of words for a simple question but I sure would like to know what to do if this happens. Much thanks, Curly

RE: Wheel Bearings

I know this has been asked or said before but I am old and can't remember .....why can't they use regular automotive style wheel bearings like in our cars and trucks? I had a truck that had 165,000 miles on it and never had to replace/pack either front or rear bearings. Here goes the can of worms..... Thanks, Curly
